Mildred Apenyo is a 24-year-old Ugandan writer-turned-entrepreneur who is on a quest to get women strong. She was one of 28 honorees selected for President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI). She’s quit her job as a copy writer in advertising to pursue her dream of opening a women’s only gym in Uganda — the Fit Clique.
"I believe it is essential to have a space where women can work out in a distraction free, lewd comment free, ogling free environment with trainers who know how to work with ladies," says Apenyo. "I also believe that it is necessary for the ultra-conservative women. When you are doing something essential and helping better the lives of others, I believe you will always make money eventually."

Ugandan king battles oxford museum over lost throne
It is a struggle between the dignity of an embattled African dynasty and the reputation of one of England’s most distinguished historical collections. And it concerns a disagreement that centres on the whereabouts of the lost throne of a Ugandan kingdom and a perceived injustice that is still remembered from the treachery and confusion of the colonial era.
